Question about Epson PowerLite 740c Multimedia Projector

Open Question

Multiple monitor issue, laptop to Epson Powerlite projector

Projector is connected to laptop with standard computer monitor / component video cable. (Projector works properly when connected to a Dell workstation computer.) On the laptop, display settings have 2nd monitor enabled, with setting selected: "extend desktop to second monitor". Projector shows only a Windows XP logo blue background screen, but does not show the desktop display that appears on the laptop. One troubleshooting screen suggested the display adaptor could be the problem--only AGI or AEP(?) adapters would work. Laptop has Radeon ATI adapters.

You have not set the port on the back of the projector settings.

Go into the projector menu and go into the IMAGE area. Somewhere in here you should be able to select computer.

SOURCE: epson powerlite s4 projector is pink

I assume this is an LCD. I don't remember the s4 being a DLP projector.

This sounds like the LCD panel used for the red color has gone out. The image is made up of red, green and blue images layered upon the screen. If the red panel has gone out then there is nothing filtering out the red light in the image. This causes a nice red hue to the whole screen.

It could be a simple open and reconnect fix. I personally have never opened a projector, so I'm not going to walk you through it as I do not know how hard it would be to tinker with. It should eb a cheap fix for a true repair man though.

SOURCE: I have an Epson powerlite s4 and a yellowish patch

The likely cause is either dirty optics inside the projector or some of the special mirrors inside the optics are burned. If the projector was used a lot then the special mirrors are probably burned. If it's just dust on the optics the unit could be opened and cleaned but you might have to take it in to a repair place to have that done.

Cannot Connect My Compaq Presario CQ57 to my Epson Powerlite S4 LCD Projector! Help! Please?


Hi,
The USB port in the projector is only for Optional Mouse to srcroll down the menu of the projector. Its not ment for the Video connectivity. You have to use 15 pin VGA cable to interconnect the PC and the projector then only you will get the video.

Here i have added the link for the user manual of the projector. Check out page number 30 of the manual.

My Windows XP is connected to my Epson Powerlite S3, but the screen is blue with the words Source: Computer (Auto) No Signal on it. When I click "Help" on the projector, it takes me to a screen...


'No signal' and 'unsupported signal' messages mean 1 of 2 things, either the VGA output is off(laptop) or the display resolution is set too high(laptop and desktop). Assuming the VGA cable you are using is good, try this:


Desktop: hook the computer back up too your computer monitor & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. For windows XP, right click a blank area on the desktop, click 'properties' on the dropdown menu, click settings. Write down the numbers in the 'screen resolution' and 'color quality' boxes!

Drag the 'screen resolution' all the way down to then 'less' side. Then change the 'color quality' to the lowest setting. Click apply, then answer yes (the display will look UGLY - don't worry!!) Now connect your computer back to your projector. If it works, then the resolution you use on your desktop monitor is not supported on your projector. Experiment with different resolutions to see which one looks best on your projector. You will need to change the settings each time you switch monitor to projector.


Laptop: by default the VGA connector on your laptop is off. To turn it on, look for a blue symbol on one of your function (F1, F2, F3...) keys. It looks like an old TV with a line on both sides 'O' (F4 on HP) Press & hold the blue button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control ) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you're a computer a few seconds to change over. If the laptop screen goes blank, you found the correct button! The display image should now be visible. Repeat this 1 to 2 times to change it back to laptop display.

If you did not see the display on the projector, 2 other issues are possible. First, verify that the VGA output on the laptop is working - connect the laptop to a regular computer monitor & change the display resolution to the lowest settings (see desktop above), then try it again on the projector. If you cannot get an image on a computer monitor, your laptop settings may need to be adjusted in the same dialogue box as the settings. Monitor #1 is the laptop display, Monitor #2 is the external output.
Happy viewing :)

How do you hook up cable tv to my epson powerlite 830p lcd video projector


To hook up cable tv, you will need to have the cable running into a vcr 1st, then run either your s-video cable or audio video cables into the projector. Press the Source Search button on the remote control or the projector repeatedly until you see the image you want to project on the screen. The projector has two Source buttons.
Use the Computer/Component button to switch between equipment
connected to the Computer/Component ports.
Use the Video/S-Video button to switch between equipment
connected to the Video and S-Video ports.
? The remote control has four Source buttons. Use them to switch
between devices connected to the ports identified on each button.
(The PowerLite 830p does not support EasyMP.TM)
You can preview all sources on one screen to help you select the
desired source. (Allow a few seconds for the projector to sync up
after pressing the button.)

I have an Epson 3LCD that does not display red


First, with the unit on, connect a known-good monitor cable, or video cable to ensure it's not a connection problem! If the projector displays red with a computer but not normal video, there is a problem with the video input section of the projector and vice versa. If, however, no red is produced no matter what, it is highly likely that the lcd is either disconnected (from impact or vibration) or non-functioning. From my experience with Epson, if the lcd's are involved at all, the entire "optical engine" (the internal mounting unit for all the mirrors and lenses) must be replaced as a unit due to how the lcd's are mounted. ---Rick

Problem hooking my macbook to the Powerlite 62c/82c the projector


For these types of projectors if you're planning to hook it up using you MacBook ;

You will need a converter ( from VGA to DVI )
Using the VGA cable that came with the unit when purchased ;

Connect the VGA cable on the back of the Projector and on the other of the cable you will connect the converter ( VGA TO DVI ) since for MAC systems it has DVI ports for monitors not VGA...

You can purchase the converter at any Mac store or any computer shop near you..

Two possible solutions:

1) The video mode is set to Component/RGB instead of VGA.

2) The cable you have may have a break inside of it.
